[Photos] Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Unicomp still sells both blue on white alphas as well as blue modifiers if you want to build it yourself, it just won't have the Kentucky icons on it. Apparently Unicomp hasn't changed their dyes in 20 years, the F1 key was missing and I just got my replacement yesterday. I special ordered it with "dark blue" and PANIC and it matches perfectly (other than the black dye compared to the white legends of the others.

There's some serious money on merchandise, in Germany we got tons of soccer stuff that I'm not into one bit.

I plan on pretty much being done with the hobby so to speak at the end of 2018 where I'll have the following:

    ◦ Gamdias Hermes GKB-2010 (Cherry MX Red)
    ◦ Massdrop Ctrl (Halo Clear)
    ◦ Varmilo VA87MR (Cherry MX Gray)
    ◦ Sharp X68000 (Alps SKCL Green)
    ◦ Sharp X1 (Alps SKCL Green)
    ◦ Matias Laptop Pro (Matias Quiet Click)
    ◦ NEC PC-8801mk II SR (Alps SKCM Blue)

I might make some changes later such as adding MX mount sliders to the Matias, but that is still just a thought at this point.

I have a similar plan, btw nice collection 8-) .
I sold all keyboards that I dont use and nearly all the other stuff.

My current collection so far:
  • Finished:
  • YAS62 (Gateron Red)
  • GH60 C (vintage Blacks with 62g Springs)
  • Redscarf III (Gateron Red)
  • IBM 5251 Beamspring (Xwhatsit and Solenoid)
  • Leopold FC660C (KBDfans Sliders)
  • Not finished
  • IBM SSK (Xwhatsit and Solenoid - needs a replacement Xwhatsit)
  • Apple M0110A (Gateron Yellows, Xwhatsit and Solenoid - current state is: everything needs to bew wired up)
  • Stuff from GBs
  • F62 reproduction
  • Rama M10

I think that is all what I want, maybe a small keyboard with some of the new low profile mechanical switches to try them out.

Just built my KBDFans KBD8X with some German Dyesubs and 60g Skidata MX Clears. The right Shift and Fn are from Enjoy PBT and unfortunately don't exactly match the Cherry dyesubs (color and font). Does anybody know a good source for keys that match the original better?

Now on to learning how to program it, it is supposed to be QMK compatible.

Kaihua Box Pale Switches, Satan PCB, lubed stabilizers, LeandreN HHKB plate, Pok3r case, dye-sub PBT SA (kbdfans) keycaps. The keyboard feels great, reminds me of clicky Space Invader switches. This will be my ... "prose writing" keyboard ! Uhh, I mean, typewriter :)

I tried that, but the font of doubleshots looks just too sharp compared to the dyesubs. Also I'm worried of the ABS yellowing and then again it wouldn't match the dyesubs.

Whenever I am trying out a new national layout or (or customizing one), this is the keyboard I test it out with:

Model_M_XXK.jpg
IBM Model M XXK.


Note the homing bars under... er... X and X.

I went for blank mods because there's no universally accepted set of icon-only legends for all of them (F keys excepted, of course).

I have so many questions. Why would you bother with a full set of X alphanum keys? Did you custom order them? If so, why not just go blank?!

If not, do you own enough Model Ms to make a full keyset out of Xes?!? Did you have to custom, order Xes with homing bumps?!?

I did try blanks first, but it just wasn't good enough: in order to learn how to touch type a new national layout, I needed a keyboard that would be actually unhelpful. I considered several letters (a full set of Z keys, or N keys, or half and half F and J), and in the end I decided X was the best for this task.
scottc wrote:If not, do you own enough Model Ms to make a full keyset out of Xes?!?

Don't I wish. :mrgreen:

I bought them (the keycaps, that is).

scottc wrote:Did you have to custom, order Xes with homing bumps?!?

Yes. Those two are a custom order, made by Unicomp.

Well. I can't claim to understand it but can't fault your dedication.

I'd love to see a whole Model M with question marks on every key. :lol:

I could have gone with the letter S, instead (for Silvia Saint), but that letter is too positive around here to serve the intended function here. I did consider using the letter N or the letter Z (and even going half and half with F and J), but in the end, I felt X was the best option.

I only considered alphabetic keycaps because other symbols would have required custom ordering ALL caps, making this project a tad too expensive. Then again, if I ever do this with a symbol, I'll probably choose U+2716 (✖). :)
